These pants were a bit harder to make and hence no pictures. Basically I cut off the top of the skirt with the elastic. Next I cut the skirt in half. Attach to a pair of boy short bikini bottoms.
here is with a hip belt (which covers the shorts).
Without (a side view)
I just need some hemming here. Because they are long. But having a pair of black sparkly pants to dance (especially when I have fat days!... or to hide my knee brace).
